UNITED NATIONS — North Korea vowed on Thursday to launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the United States, amplifying its threatening rhetoric as U.N. diplomats voted on whether to level new sanctions against Pyongyang for its recent nuclear test.
An unidentified spokesman for Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry said the North will exercise its right for “a preemptive nuclear attack to destroy the strongholds of the aggressors” because Washington is pushing to start a nuclear war against the North.
Although North Korea boasts of nuclear bombs and pre-emptive strikes, it is not thought to have mastered the ability to produce a warhead small enough to put on a missile capable of reaching the U.S. It is believed to have enough nuclear fuel, however, for several crude nuclear devices.
Such inflammatory rhetoric is common from North Korea, and especially so in recent days. North Korea is angry over the possible sanctions and over upcoming U.S.-South Korean military drills. At a mass rally in Pyongyang on Thursday, tens of thousands of North Koreans protested the U.S.-South Korean war drills and sanctions.
To threaten a Atomic Nuclear Bomb strike to the USA is a end game threat!
Meaning this that nobody believes North Korea would want to get “flattened” and completely destroyed! Now which way would the aftermath on N. Korea blow? And would China permit damage to itself?
I THINK THIS IS GETTING TO BE TOO STUPID!
N. KOREA, YOUR GAME IS STUPID! And your cost on sanctions is stupid also!
